This soft 100% cotton woven hammock with wooden spreader bars is ideal for a shady spot in the garden, lying and looking up through the dappled shade.
From El Salvador in Central America, we’ve managed to find some beautiful cotton hammocks. Manufactured from 100% soft cotton twine in an off-white colour, it comes with wooden spreader bars which makes it a little easier to get into and get out of, though this still takes a little practice!
The best way we’ve found of using the hammock is to stand by the middle of the side of it, facing away, and then sit down into it before swinging your feet up and in at the same time as you turn through 90 degrees and lie down. Should you want to get up again, just do this in reverse, but we wouldn’t be in a rush to get up that soon.
Cotton hammock length: 3.40 metres
Rated up to 140 kg, you will need to find a suitably sturdy combination of trees and walls to support this canvas hammock.
